Community groups - Parenting (Feeding Support) and Pregnancy

Pregnancy Parent Feeding Support Group

We now have two groups which run on a monthly basis from our clinic premises.

The first is the monthly feeding support group. This group is run by a small group of mums who between us all have breast fed for many years, formula fed, combination fed and have experienced both baby lead and puree weaning. They’ve all had their own experiences and would like to themselves available to share those with you. The group is predominantly peer support, however they also have visits from breastfeeding counsellors, midwives and health visitors when possible. Baby scales and measuring mats are available if needed. Tea, coffee, squash, biscuits and cake provided. Babies and children of all ages welcome to come too. Parking is free and directly outside clinic, the group is free of charge as all refreshments are funded by Village Chiropractic Clinic. The next meeting of the group is on Wednesday March 14th at 10am.

 

The second group is a newly formed positive pregnancy and postnatal group. Midwife, Becky Hamilton and Chiropractor, Jenny Hudson, have teamed up to help run a positive birth and pregnancy group. The group is open to all who are currently pregnant, planning to conceive or would like to share their experiences of pregnancy or birth with others in a supportive environment. Children and partners are very welcome, tea/coffee/squash and biscuits will be provided.

Becky Hamilton has been a registered midwife for 12 years, she views pregnancy as a very normal biological process and see complementary therapies as just that, a complement to the more usual western medicine. Jenny Hudson has been a practicing chiropractor for 16 years, she has a special interest in working during pregnancy in particular with pelvic girdle pain and birth presentations. Between them they will help to answer as many questions as they can, signpost as needed and will workshop different areas. The group is run monthly and is free of charge. The next meeting of the group is on Saturday March 17th at 10am.

If you have any questions or would like to attend either group please do ask in reception at your next visit or ring 01889 500448.
